The report released in December by A+ Denver said nearly a third of schools awarded School Improvement Grants during the first three years of the program are performing worse than prior to receiving the federal money.
The report said 46 percent of schools in the first three cohort groups of SIG funding are not keeping pace with their peers with regard to achievement.
Six D60 schools were part of the first cohort of schools in the state to receive the three-year SIG grants, which expired in September.
